Just wanted to add my 2 pence as another Zentyal refugee looking for a new home.
I reluctantly upgraded to 3.5 despite it removing a couple of features that I used, but thankfully were easy to replace with native Ubuntu versions. However, the direction that Zentyal has taken since before 3.5 to move away from a network gateway server to be a Micro$haft Exchange replacement has forced me to look for alternatives. All I’m looking for, is the sharp front end for an internal network to connect to the “big bad interweb”, which is what Zentyal are shying away from now.
I’m not really interested in what version Samba is installed, as long as it does what Samba was designed for: To integrate Windows sharing technology in Linux.
And to a couple of replies earlier in this thread, with Zentyal 3.5, or at least what I’m seeing, is that the automatic notification of updates has gone away. You have to go to the Dashboard and select the components option to see if there are any.
As soon as my ESXi server is back on-line, I’ll be running some serious testing to enable me to leave the Zentyal world to be the Exchange fan-boi they aspire to be. Good luck to them in that arena.
